Americans for Prosperity-Nebraska Jessica Shelburn issued the following statement:

“Neomi Rao is eminently qualified to serve on the D.C. Circuit Court. Nebraskans and all Americans will benefit from her impartiality and commitment to interpreting the Constitution as written. Senator Sasse’s vote for Neomi Rao’s nomination will be a great step for ensuring our judiciary refrains from partisan activism and won’t legislate from the bench. We are mobilizing our grassroots activists behind Rao’s nomination and we urge Senator Sasse to confirm her.”
